Fighting Oral Cancer With Technology

velscopeVELscope Lesion Detection

This is our portable oral cancer screening device. With the aid of the VELscope device, we are beginning to incorporate oral cancer screening into routine dental exams. Although we’ve always checked for lesions during these exams, oral cancer is typically at stage 3 or 4 by the time such lesions are visible to the eye. We are determined to catch the cancer before this point to give our patients the best shot at treatment. Today, oral cancer is becoming more prevalent due to the spread of HPV. That being said, it is important for us to help catch the disease in its early stages. Using the VELscope system, examination takes under 2 minutes and requires no rinses or stains. To learn more about VELscope devices, visit their site.
